    beautiful. none of today's truck can hold a candle to the looks or the toughness of these fords.

    $15k for a brand new ford of this era is a steal compared to what you would pay for a new truck today. gotta keep an eye on this and see where it goes.

    It is a nice truck. But he says it is a 429 5.1 liter, lol. If you look close at the window sticker, it is a 7.5 liter 460. Dummy doesnt even know what he has

    lmao.. nope he doesn't know what he has.. i see he explained the pic of the 5.0 now.. but still claims it's a 429 5.1 ltr... maybe i'm wrong but isn't the 429 a 7.0 litre......... looks like an ebay scam to me, or some dumb azz that got that left to them in a will...

    Someone in Akron or close to it should make the trip to see if its a scam or not.

    I'm not the seller and don't have any association whatsoever w/ him. Just thought it was an unusual find and I know alot of guys on here like the OBS Fords.

    I was thinking the same thing, but its still a damn nice rig. And the fact that you can't buy em' new like that anymore makes it alot more interesting.
